Mercedes College is a Catholic co-educational school established by the Sisters of Mercy. The Archbishop of Adelaide chairs the Board of Governors. The college is set in seven hectares of grounds in Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, and caters for children from 5 years to 18 years of age.

Mercedes College provides a challenging academic programme with matriculating options through the Senior Secondary Assessment Board of South Australia and the International Baccalaureate Diploma curriculum. The school also uses the IB Primary Years and Middle Years programmes. French is offered from Reception to Year 12 and Indonesian is introduced at Year 8.

Staff at Mercedes College are experienced and tend to stay for considerable periods of time. Interstate and overseas exchange is encouraged.

Almost all graduates from the Mercedes College proceed to tertiary education. A number of students mainly from South East Asia join the school at Year 11 but most students are of local origin.

The Mercedes College school year starts in late January and concludes in early December. There are four terms of ten weeks and a five day academic programme. An extensive extra curricular programme, including tennis, soccer, netball, basketball, athletics, swimming, drama, music, chess and debating is provided after school and on Saturdays.
